Repossi Joins The LVMH Stable

Le 14 janvier 2017, 11:11 dans Humeurs 0

REPOSSI has joined the LVMH stable of brands, receiving investment from the conglomerate to begin a new growth strategy. The jewellery label, helmed by designer Gaia Repossi, agreed to sell a minority stake to the French firm in order to build a platform for future growth.

The designer has a close relationship with Delphine Arnault - a board member at her father's company, LVMH, and second in command at Louis Vuitton - WWD reports, and the executive has been instrumental in forging the deal. Repossi revealed that she is keen to see the investment help the business to build its profile and reach, but doesn't intend to allow it to outgrow its niche feel.

"When you face a certain success and production increases, you have to embrace that demand, but to a degree that is realistic and allows a progressive expansion," Repossi told WWD. "The idea is to follow a strategy that has this very organic growth, and for that I'm very excited and pleased to share it with LVMH and Delphine herself, because for me, the group has the best knowledge and experience in this category."

LVMH controls several successful jewellery labels - including De Beers and Bulgari - as well as major ready-to-wear and couture houses including Dior, Vuitton, Givenchy and Céline.

Rihanna Just Pulled Off the Boldest Look From the Fall Runways IRL

Le 6 septembre 2016, 07:36 dans Humeurs 0

While some become fashion icons for their ability to make even the easiest outfits look elevated and elegant, Rihanna's earned her style cred for doing just the opposite. The singer has made outrageous, overtly sexy, statement-making fashion look entirely wearable, as evidenced by her latest outing in NYC. Rihanna stepped out on Monday wearing a bright red, furry, heart-shaped coat that we first saw on Saint Laurent's Fall '16 runway when we wondered who on earth might have what it takes to pull it off.

When we caught Rihanna wearing it, we nodded, of course. There's hardly a shocking fashion moment the style setter hasn't handled with ease, carrying off a completely see-through gown or a mile-long train with nonchalance. And so, when she headed down the street in NYC, bundled up in the almost cartoon-like creation, she looked cool and carefree, thanks to a baseball cap and lace-up heels. Read on to see Rihanna rule the street in the boldest Fall coat.


Introducing Rihanna, fashion mogul

Every so often a piece of news comes along that’s so important, it rivals the 41st anniversary of Leonardo DiCaprio’s birth.

Enter: today, and reports that Rihanna (our patron saint of power, confidence, and hustling) has started her own styling, hair, and makeup agency with managing partner Benoit Demouy. The L.A.-based agency is called Fr8me, and will style artists for commercials, editorials, campaigns, and red carpet appearances.

This, of course, is amazing. First, because Rihanna styles herself better than we could ever dream to, and second, because she understands the industry in a profound sense of the word. She’s been styled. She’d been photographed. She’s starred in campaigns and been featured in editorials. She knows what photographers want, and she knows what they don’t, and she’s probably met a fair share of professional beauty and style artists whose work will benefit more than a few campaigns.

“Hair, makeup, and styling play an important role in creativity,” she told The Hollywood Rerporter. “I am very involved with that part of my process, so this agency was an organic thing for me to do.”

And this agency is a roster that isn’t messing around. According to Harper’s, the staff includes Rihanna’s makeup artist, Mylah Morales, wardrobe stylist Jason Bolden, and hair stylists Marcia Hamilton and Patricia Morales. It’s also embracing the warm arms of social media, with Demouy revealing that they’ll “take a makeup artist with 500,000 followers over someone else.” Thus proving even more that they understand the evolution of the makeup, beauty, and fashion industries, as well as how a strong social media presence tends to exist for a reason.

Rihanna 2020, please and thank you.
